10 Most Venomous Animals In The World

Published on 06 Apr 2020 / In Pets & Animals

Mother nature is amazing. It’s given us some of the most gorgeous, amazing animals to ever exist. While some of those animals are majestic and relatively safe to be around, there’s a whole bunch of animals that you never, ever want to mess with. And that’s not just because they’re big and scary and can trample you in seconds – in fact, most of the animals on the list aren’t even that big. But just because they’re small doesn’t mean they aren’t deadly.

The Puffer Fish

Puffer fishes have a cute look to them. They even look kind of silly and harmless when they’re all big and blown up – but don’t let that deceive you. Puffer fishes are actually very, very dangerous… But even with that fact being well known, people still eat them. When eating a puffer fish you have to make sure to cut them in a particular way, because if you don’t, you could be eating straight up poison. That’s because the puffer fish’s body contains a very dangerous toxin known as tetrodoxin. If you get that into your body, you can have issues with speech and coordination while experiencing a tingling sensation. That can also lead to convulsions, paralysis, and eventually even death.

Brazilian Wandering Spider

We all know to stay away from spiders. If the eight legs and eyes aren’t enough to keep you away from them, then knowing that they can kill you should. While some spiders look scary and aren’t harmless, there are some that are scary and are super harmful. That’s the perfect way to describe the Brazilian wandering spider. It has a rather sweet nickname – the banana spider. But don’t let the nickname fool you, because if this spider wants to kill you, it can and it will. Packed with a load of venom, this spider was labelled as the most venomous animal in the world by the Guinness World Book of Records in 2007. That should tell you everything you need to know about this thing. If the spider doesn’t kill you, it can also cause paralysis.

The Death Stalker Scorpion

If the name didn’t tell you everything you need to know, then let this be a warning to you: stay away from the death stalker scorpion. Most scorpions should be avoided in general, but this one should be at the top of your list. And why is that exactly? Well, it has a venom so strong that it not only causes discomfort and swelling, but it also cause respiratory failure. If you have heart problems and allergies, then you’ll quickly fall victim to this scorpion if it attacks you. This scorpion takes no prisoners and it should be left alone if stumbled upon. It can usually be found in North Africa and the Middle East, and while its translucent colour might make you think its not that dangerous, you shouldn’t let appearances fool you.

The Stonefish

When getting into the water, there’s a few things to avoid. Sharks and jellyfish seem to be the most common creatures to stay away from, but what about fish? You might be thinking that there aren’t any dangerous fish wandering around in the ocean, but then you must not know about the stonefish. Not only cane this fish camouflage in with the watery surroundings it lives in, but it carries toxins that can cause all kinds of issues. Some of these issues include paralysis, shock, and death. While there are treatments for the stonefish’s poison, victims need to get their hands on it quickly, because the venom works fast. Since most people are in the water when they get attacked, that isn’t exactly an easy task.

The Blue-Ringed Octopus

This is one of those animals that you don’t think can really take your life, and that’s because it’s just so dang small. When we think of killer animals we think of lions and sharks, not animals that we can fit in the palm of our hands. But you might want to avoid doing that with the blue-ringed octopus – in fact, you should stay away from it at all costs. Just because you can fit in the palm of your hand, does not mean that it won’t kill you. It’s considered one of the most dangerous creatures to live in the ocean, and not only can it kill you, but it can also cause you to go blind. Venom from this octopus can also give you nausea, and the chance of paralysis is also high. In fact, this octopus is so strong that it has enough toxins in its body to kill almost thirty people – that’s a lot of poison for one tiny, little animal.
